Soil Scout integrates with GreenSight

By |  May 27, 2021 0 Comments

Wireless underground soil monitoring solution Soil Scout launched its full integration package with U.S.-based provider of autonomous aerial intelligence services GreenSight.

“In drought years like we are experiencing currently in the Western U.S., making more informed decisions with regards to water is vital. If we don’t start monitoring and becoming more efficient in our water use in industries like golf, viticulture and farming, we will see golf courses close, farmland sit barren, and wineries close their doors,” said Kevin Hauschel, West Coast sales lead for Greensight Ag/Soil Scout.

The technology partnership gives turf and agronomical professionals a real-time understanding of how to create optimal above and below-ground conditions while increasing efficiency in water and nutrient usage.

Soil Scout’s sensors and GreenSight’s TurfCloud platform provide a machine vision analysis of the entire grounds captured by drone-mounted sensors, making it possible to see everything in the soil and be able to plan the day’s work before setting foot outside.

GreenSight’s drones have three high-resolution infrared-NDVI cameras and a radiometrically calibrated thermal camera, paired with a flight time of 60 minutes. Soil Scout’s soil sensors have solar-powered base stations and repeaters that have a 20-year in-ground battery life.

Soil Scout has also expanded its U.S. operations with an aim to accelerate its go-to-market efforts and combat the ongoing drought in California by adding feet on the ground in New England, Texas and Arizona with the new hires of Kevin Hauschell, Dan Jennings, Zach Sevens and Joe Lazzaro.
